Summary:
Pink Martini/Heinz Records seeks a creative and publicity director who can shape, execute and support innovative approaches to the band’s marketing plans, product development, tour development and overall growth.

This job requires a person who can work well and communicate effectively within a dynamic team, who possesses strong writing skills, who can efficiently develop creative ideas within parameters, and who has mastered strong organizational skills in order to complete complex projects within deadlines.
